Art, Artists, & ‘Madness’ – The Mask Project
Spring 2011 Gallery: “The Pieces of Ourselves”
Your face is one of the most personal expressions of your identity and personality. A full face mask offers students the opportunity to explore and express to others their identity and personal stories through artistic symbols.
As you can see, the variety in the masks is as rich as that found in the students who made them.
At the end of three weeks of sharing their masks to others, we knew that as different as we all are, we are also very much alike. We knew how to receive and value all stories. We knew that we knew how to create a place for everyone; no exceptions. We knew that our stories connected us to each other in meaningful ways.
We knew from direct experience how strong and capable we are.
